CPD and PDP

The RACGP QI&CPD Program has approved two 40 Category 1 point activities. These include:

  • A questionnaire completed by patients on the doctor’s interpersonal skills (DISQ).
  • A questionnaire completed by the doctor’s colleagues on their professionalism (360 feedback). This activity involves colleagues providing feedback on the doctor's professional skills such as clinical ability, time management, team work, probity and health.
  • A self-directed module (workbook and video) on improving one’s interpersonal skills in the medical consultation (DAIS).

The Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), as part of its Professional Development Program, has approved the DISQ and the 360 feedback for 30 points extended skills.
